Today, Embraer achieved a monumental milestone as the Phenom 300 series became the world’s best-selling light jet for the 10th consecutive year and the most delivered twinjet of 2021, according to numbers released by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA).
Embraer delivered 56 Phenom 300 series light jets in 2021 to achieve this distinction, signaling a decade of product excellence and market dominance.
The Phenom 300 series has had the largest annual delivery rate with 50+ jets being delivered, on average, since entering the market in December 2009.
